Help, my cookies began not working over a month ago. Any changes to the options->privacy panel do not take affect. (Have tried to remmber history and not use custom). Logins requiring cookies are failing. cookies.sqlite and cookies.sqlite-journal are both dated over a month ago. Also Firefox startup now takes about a full two minutes, frequent actions cause window to go translucent for extended periods of time - appears that java scripts hang up for a good while.

Rename (or delete) cookies.sqlite and cookies.txt, if they exist, in the Profile Folder in case cookies.sqlite got corrupted.
